Hello,

   

I am a beginner.

   

I have a project but...

   

Where are PGA and ADC at System-level?

   

I know how to use them at Chip-level.

   

But my new project need them...

   

If not, how to make them?

   

Thank you~

What do you mean system level? Do you mean at the chip level or assembly level in the program?

Welcome in the forum.

   

Drag and drop the components you need on the TopDesign view and configure them as you need.

   

Use the option to show the datasheet for the components to see how to access them in code.

Can you describe in a little bit more detail what you problem is? Normally you open the schematic for your project, add the required components to it, configure and wire them. Then you create your source files (or open main.c), include project.h at the top and call the needed APIs for the components.

The software for PSoC1 in your picture is obsolete for more than 4 years. You are posting here in a PSoC5 forum which is a completely different device.

   

Can you please elaborate and tell us what you want to do.

I have a photodiode because I need "light intensity".
I have try it from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhJxlZkFf7s

   

But I want the same one at System Level.

   

Q2 is my new picture.

   

1.There is my project block diagram.
2.This is  PSoC 5.0.
3.I can’t find components to drog and drop.  (PD.PGA.ADC) 

   

Q: Where are them or how can I do?

   

Thank you~

What you have got is a PSoC1. The program you are using is PSoC Designer 5.0 (latest version is 5.4) There is no "System Level" for the design any more.

   

You are posting in a PSoC5 forum which is a completely different chip compared to a PSoC1 and uses completely different software.

   

I would like to give you the following advice:

   

Get a CY8CKIT-059 PSoC5 Prototyping Kit or at least a CY8CKIT-043 PSoC4-M Prototyping Kit. What you get more is

   
        
  • SRam
  •     
  • Flash
  •     
  • Debugging capabilities
  •     
  • Modern ARM M3 or M0 CPU core
  •     
  • ~100 ready-to-use components
  •     
  • Reasonable price
  •

Hi Bob

   

I have the same issue with glacialionepoch_1604421.

   

Actually, Psoc 5.0 has system level interface.

   

I think system level is more friendly than chip level, just a little issue --> I often can't find component that I need .

Welcome in the forum, Charlie!

   

As I stated before: Cypress is at version 5.4 with the Designer software and the "System level" has been abandoned due to severe errors some years ago. And just to keep it right: You are not talking about PSoC 5.0, you are talking about PSoC Designer 5.0.

Hi Bob

   

Thanks for your answer. 

   

Yes, I mean Psoc Designer 5.0, Sorry for misread your reply.

   

As your words, I think  "system level" were abandoned because some errors in this interface. Am I right??

   

One more question. Do you recommend  I use chip level interface even I use Psoc Designer 5.0??

When you are a beginner I would suggest you not to use PSoC1. The reason is: Debugging the code is only possible with additional hardware (ICE Box). This can make the development of more complex applications very difficult. Way out could be for you to get a CY8CKIT-059 PSoC5 Prototyping Kit or at least a CY8CKIT-043 PSoC4-M Prototyping Kit.

   

You will have to use C-language to program any of the PSoCs. Furthermore: Use the actual IDE which is Designer 5.4 for PSoC1 and Creator 3.3 for PSoC3,4,and 5.
